What is Restylane®™? Restylane®™ is a crystal-clear, non-animal, biodegradable gel based on hyaluronic-acid and an alternative to Juvederm®™, Perlane and Captique. Restylane®™ contains 100,000 gel particles per cc/ml. The gel is injected with a very fine needle to enhance lip shape and augment lip size.
How does Restylane®™ work and what are the advantages? It immediately lifts and adds volume to the areas being treated, creating a plump and pouty look. The skin remains soft and natural to the touch. No skin test is required and there is no downtime.
Are Restylane®™ results instantaneous? The result is immediate and produces a long-lasting, natural enhancement, gentle and safe to your skin. You can expect to experience some swelling after the procedure, so your lips should be larger than the desired end result. Swelling will resolve within 2 to 3 days and lips will retain a full and sculpted look.
Do I need more than one Restylane®™ treatment? Results can generally be obtained with one treatment, however, touch up treatments may be desired to further enhance the look.
How long can I expect Restylane®™ results to last? Treatment results differ for each person, however, you can expect results to last from 3 and up to 6 months.
What are some of the possible Restylane®™ side effects? There are no reported allergic reactions. The most common side effects with any injection include possible bleeding, and tenderness, redness, or swelling. These side effects last, on average, 2 to 3 days.
